Titans keep their playoff hopes alive with a 23-16 win over the Jaguars.

Jared Cook set career highs with eight catches and 169 yards, including a 55-yard touchdown as the Tennessee Titans (8-7) kept their playoff hopes alive with a 23-16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday. Maurice Jones-Drew did pick up 103 yards rushing, while also scoring a touchdown, to maintain the NFL's rushing yardage lead in a losing cause.

The Titans jumped out to a 10-0 lead and the Jaguars were never able to entirely close that gap. The closest they got was after Jones-Drew's touchdown made it 10-7 in the second quarter.

The Jaguars (4-11) were limited to 187 net passing yards in the game, needing 42 passes to get there. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert was also held without a touchdown, while tossing an interception.

Matt Hasselbeck did not necessarily have a great game, tossing one touchdown and two interceptions. But he did pass for 350 yards.
